comment Benefit of “Twisty bottom” ballpoint pens over “Clicky tops”
Ah - good point. Didn't read it that way. The "harder to open accidentally" still applies ;-)

comment Psychological pricing vs. being fair?
If you've not got the numbers then you never going to know what's going to work best. So best to focus the energy spent on figuring out exactly the right copy for the sign up page to the parts of the service that are getting you more people ;-)

comment Why does the Facebook registration page require you to retype the email and NOT the password?
I don't personally think it's worth the -1 - but Quora doesn't let you see the material without logging in.

comment Definition and example to distinguish qualitative and quantitative research
I disagree. I encounter UX folk in industry doing user research all of the time. Indeed I've seen a positive resurgence of it in recent years. Just last week I was talking to a client about diary studies they had run. It very much depends on the organisation. Things like Lean Startup have brought classic qual techniques like interviewing to the table in many organisations.

comment Why is the navigation below the brand strip at the top in the new Twitter & Vine app?
As evidence - this report shows the majority of access is not one-handed uxmatters.com/mt/archives/2013/02/…

Agree with Marjan. Not see this myself. Not seen any research that supports it.
